Fighting Fantasy Ornaments were made by Clarecraft Designs Ltd.

They were first produced in 1992[1] and later reproduced in 2004 using the same designs, although not all of the original ornaments were re-released.

1992 - Original ReleaseEdit

Each model had a code that was preceded by the letters "JL":

Snow Witch

The Snow Witch ornament

25th Anniversary Edition of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain ErrataEdit

For some reason the following are not listed as one of the designs by the "Fighting Fantasy Collection" section of the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain:

  • JL06 - Doragar
  • JL09 - Hell Demon

Likewise, the following is listed in the publication, yet was never one of the designs:

Additionally, "JL11 - The Skull Bearer" is referred to as "Bone Collector" in the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Warlock of Firetop Mountain.

This book also gives a date of 1986 for the original release but this is inaccurate, with the models themselves having inscribed upon them the 1992 date.

2004 Re-ReleasesEdit

Shapechanger

The Shape Changer ornament

In 2004, after the relaunch of Fighting Fantasy by Wizard Books, Clarecraft once again produced these figurines, although in this new release only 10 pieces were produced, with the Titan Dragon and FF Plaque/Bookend pieces not being re-released. This time the pieces had code that was preceded by the letters "LJ" (as opposed to "JL" in the originals):

  • LJ01 - The Warlock of Firetop Mountain
  • LJ02 - Zhandar Marr The Undead Sorcerer
  • LJ03 - The Snow Witch
  • LJ04 - The Shape Changer
  • LJ05 - Doragar
  • LJ06 - Gillibran Lord Of The Dwarfs
  • LJ07 - The Minotaur
  • LJ08 - Hell Demon
  • LJ09 - The Ghoul
  • LJ10 - The Skull Bearer

The reasons for the other ornaments not being re-released are as follows. The Hydra, was never launched even in the original 1992 production due to the complexity of its design, hence no re-release was possible. The Fighting Fantasy Statue Plaque/Bookend had the Puffin Books logo on it, and so could not be associated with Wizard Books. As for the Titan dragon, possible theories are a combination of its sheer size, the fact that it has only be re-released a year previously in a different set, and also the large price tag associated with the item.
